Short tunics like that are generally of the fantasy costume variety. Later Medieval had more tailoring than the pic and where you might just get away with it (Viking) it's still on the somewhat short side. He should be wearing a knee-length tunic over a shirt, hose (tight fitting single-leg trousers) and braies (baggy underpants tucked into the trouser legs. The latter are attached to the waist of his braies by ties.
But as Telynor says, it might look as if he's wearing a dress to those who haven't got their eye in!
Prince Valiant - not a good reference for MA costuming. Check!
Just wrapping my mind around my hubby getting dressed like this in the mornings gives me a whole new appreciation for buttonholes, snaps, zippers, Velcro and elastic. Never mind my appreciation for programmable coffee makers!
